Yankees' Aaron Judge hits home run No. 50

The Yankees slugger hit a two-run homer off Kansas City's Jakob Junis on Monday, a drive to right-center in the third inning that gave NY a 3-0 lead.

Aaron Judge has been everything and more that the Yankees could have hoped for, and now he has passed Mark McGwire broken McGwire's 1987 record with 50 home runs in a season, the most home runs by a rookie in history.

Not much for celebrating his own personal achievements, Judge acknowledged the fans clamoring for a curtain call by stepping out of the home dugout and waving to the standing and cheering crowd. He's still got that teenage innocence, that "who, me?" thing that will surely rub off by next year, but for now it's impossible not to at least like the young man, even if you abhor the Yankees. "You got to go out there, '" he would later recall.

And then in the seventh inning off Royals' reliever Trevor Cahill, with a solo blast, Judge set a new rookie record mark with his 50th home run of the season.

"Obviously it would be a great accomplishment". In July and August (52 games), Judge hit.207/.359/.402 with 10 homers and 20 RBI. The Royals headed home from an 11-game, four-city trip trailing the Twins for the second AL wild card by six games with six games left.
